And on this side of the pond at 120 volts...the 600 watts is about 6 Amps and that is a really small micro. To deliver even 50 amps DC from your batteries to an appliance would require some major cabling. For 750 watts you need 6 guage cable for less than a 10 foot run in one direction.

Stick with AC!
